The King of Pop, Michael Jackson, has left an indelible mark on the music industry and the world. Even today, his iconic tracks reverberate across radios, and his dance moves remain unmatched. A testament to his enduring influence, streetwear titan BAPE is gearing up to immortalize Jackson's essence through an exclusive apparel collaboration, partnering with Michael's estate. The Japanese brand has previously displayed its prowess in weaving pop culture with fashion, and this upcoming release is set to resonate with both MJ enthusiasts and streetwear fans.

At the heart of this capsule lies the pièce de résistance: a varsity jacket mirroring the one Michael Jackson donned in his groundbreaking "Thriller" music video. Each jacket will be numbered and limited to just 50 pieces, enhancing its exclusivity. Infusing BAPE's signature elements, the jacket showcases the brand's star logo on the sleeves, a striking APE head on the chest, and a co-branded logo gracing its back.

Further extending the collection's allure are graphic tees in black and white palettes. One mesmerizing design merges MJ's visage with the iconic APE head, seamlessly integrating imagery from his illustrious album covers. Baby Milo, BAPE's playful character, looks captivating across tees. One showcases Baby Milo characters grooving to the legendary "Thriller" dance alongside a youthful Michael. At the same time, another teases MJ's iconic lean from the "Smooth Criminal" video, accompanied by Baby Milo emulating the move.

The Michael Jackson x BAPE Collection will release October 28, 2023, through BAPE online and in-store. The collection's pricing spectrum sees the Thriller Jacket tagged at approx $950 USD, while the long sleeves and T-shirts come in at approx $80 and approx $66, respectively.
